After making a sensible start to his Tottenham career, Dele Alli has been struggling for constant form in recent months.
The midfielder developed into one of the best players within the Premier League throughout Mauricio Pochettino’s reign but has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
We’ve taken a look at Spurs’ record under Mourinho when Alli begins and in contrast it to their record when he is on the bench or missing from the matchday squad altogether.
With Alli starting
Goals for: 40
Goals towards: 33
Points per game: 1.5
Win price: 42.3%
Loss price: 34.6%
Goals per game: 1.53
Goals towards per game: 1.26

Without Alli starting
Goals for: 48
Goals towards: 26
Points per game: 2
Win price: 57.1%
Loss price: 14.3%
Goals per game: 2.28
Goals towards per game: 1.23
These stats don’t keep in mind the standard of the opposition, the usual of Spurs’ line-up or a selection of different elements, but their win price is considerably higher when Alli doesn’t start.
Mourinho’s side also common more points per game and score more goals per game when the England international just isn’t within the starting XI.
